About Us

Russell – Orongo Bay Holiday Park is one of the few places in New Zealand (as filmed by the BBC Natural History unit for the program Earth’s Mythical Islands, shown worldwide in 2016) where you have a chance to see brown kiwi and are guaranteed to see the North Island weka in their natural environment as they roam around the park and the surrounding native bush.  

We are one of New Zealand’s best campgrounds as recommended by Stuff NZ

The park is set amongst 14 acres of native New Zealand bush where there is a wide diversity of New Zealand flora and fauna, up to 150 species of birds and a magnificent night sky due to the low light.   The park is central to all that is on offer in the Bay of Islands and located only minutes from Russell township.   

Stay with us and a portion of what you pay is used to restore habitat, save endangered wildlife and maintain ongoing plant and animal pest control within our predator free holiday park.  

You can’t help but take in the sights and sounds of nature making a stay with us a truly unique experience.
